People, I see so many false hopes, so many wishes and expectations.
Aus are gonna crush all the other teams and go through to the final, then thrash whichever team that has the misfortune of getting there.
As much as we dread such a prospect, it's inevitable. It's pretty much over as a contest.
Cheer up mate...Oz are clear favourites, but I wouldn't hand them the Cup over just yet
They only get two there, as Astle turned blind....
Mark Richardson - The worst thing to happen to NZ cricket since 26 all out
I don't get all this crap about how "Australia are gonna win so easily", "The final is just gonna be Australia vs ........", "It's pretty much over as a contest". I mean wtf? Its just pathetic. Seriously. What makes you think so? Am i missing something?
Once we get to the semi's anything is possible. I can see any of the 4 teams winning it from there. I can see Australia losing its semi, I can see Australia losing the final, and I can also see Australia winning it all. But by no means whatsoever, am I so pessimistic, so negative, so blind, so ignorant, to think that its gonna just be a walkover for Australia.
Have Australia played Sri Lanka or New Zealand yet? The two other big sides in the tournament? Thats right, they haven't have they.
They have played Scotland, Netherlands, South Africa (ranked #1 at the time), West Indies (#8), Bangladesh (#9), England (#7). At the beginning of the tournament i would have expected Australia to win all those games, and only have trouble with the South Africa game. And tbh, thats exactly what happened. Its not exactly like they have been playing the heavyweights. (Just like New Zealand who have there first test tonight). Basically the real tournament starts from now, with matchups like NZL vs SRL, NZL vs RSA, NZL vs AUS, SRL vs AUS etc. They are the big games, where the TOP 4 play each other. So far the only such games have been AUS vs RSA and SRL vs RSA
So how can you all say this crap? Its really get on my nerves. Maybe I can understand it from an Australian standpoint, maybe. But.......argh
As a sports fan I am disappointed in all of those people who have made such comments.
